INCIDENT 75/2020 – Nov. 1st Sun. 17.55 – Ingleborough, North Yorkshire – Mountain Incident

Three Three Peaks walkers were reported to be struggling near the summit of Ingleborough in heavy rain, high winds and minimal visibility. When they and their former companions, now down at the finish in Horton, phoned North Yorkshire Police, Force Control Room staff placed them on Simon Fell Breast, although the ‘lost’ group had stated that they were not on a path. Team members, working in minimal visibility, covered access routes and routes known, previously, to have been followed in error, but did not find the mispers. Word was then received that the trio had arrived in Clapham, walked past CRO Base and into the New Inn, next door. They then phoned their colleagues, in Horton, to pick them up.
